When debate failed, the United States turned to boxing to solve all its problems. Literally.

Battle your favorite (or least favorite) political personalities to gain electoral votes as you ascend to the presidency. Election Year Knockout is a light-hearted, comical boxing game for iOS and Android inspired by the PunchOut series.

Nearly everything you see in the game is made with Spine. We combine our love of traditional frame-by-frame animation techniques with Spine's powerful puppeteering system to give life and personality to the fighters, front and center, at a rock-solid 60fps. The power of Spine has allowed us to do some very unique things, and it has given our artists the freedom to drive the game engine directly through their animations. Characters dance across the screen, split in two, fire cannonballs at you and, in one case, a single Spine file drives two different characters so that you can battle a particularly agitated bird.

The game is slated to launch worldwide in February 2020.

14 cockatiels??

The game feels amazing from the trailer! Good job on changing the poses so much too!

Was the audio in game from actual audio footage or was it my impression?

The character voices? They're tiny voice clips from the people the characters are inspired by, mashed together to form nonsense Banjo-Kazooie style verbalizations.

This is brilliant!

I suggest adding Greenland as a location DLC :D

Only little nitpick is the location of the logo at the end. It looks like it is offset to the right. Text should be more central imo.
